De Vere Theobalds ParkMaison Moti held its annual all staff event on 20th July 2017 at the De Vere,

Theobalds Park, Cheshunt, Herts.

Entitled ‘Celebrating Success’ the event this year focused on the workforce to value their hard work, dedication and loyalty. The correlation between this, increasing outcomes for our service users, enhanced reputation and the expansion and growth of the company was made explicit.

With some 45 plus people in attendance the morning saw a number of brief presentations and open discussions centred on the achievements of the company, the future plans and the pivotal role of ALL staff in maintaining and further developing and expanding our services.

Staff were advised of the company’s plans to improve the already good retention rates of staff.

Measures in place include:

  • The pledge made in 2013 to enhance lower level pay rates across the company to at least the London Living Wage by 2016
  • Additional investment to activities of Learning, Training & Development with a focus on more specialist training
  • Enhanced career progression opportunities, including ring- fenced processes for promotion
  • Coaching & Mentoring schemes

 

New look website

This event provided the ideal opportunity for the launch of our new website, representing the changes in service provision and progress since the old site was developed in 2008.

This site is more representative of the company now and is more functional allowing us to make changes directly and keep it up to date and to benefit from advancements linked to social media.

We hope to attract many followers and to keep abreast of the procedural and practice developments through our Maison Moti facebook and twitter accounts.

 

Fun, fun, fun!

The afternoon was facilitated by Blue Hat, an external team building company with attendees competing in sub-teams to ‘Beat the Clock’ (a high energy activity based event). This provided bags of fun and laughter and no doubt helped people forge new relationships as well as to cement ones that already existed.

The day ended with everyone in high spirits and celebrating together with drinks at the on-site bar.
